Musical Organizations 

College Band. Lebanon Valley College maintains a uniformed 
band, the membership of which is made up of college and conserva- 
tory students. The band contributes to college life by playing at 
football games, by appearing on several programs during the year 
and by providing the musical accompaniment for the annual May 
Day Fete. Membership in the band is determined by an applicant's 
ability on his instrument and by the needs of the band with respect 
to maintaining a well-balanced instrumentation. 

College Orchestra. The Lebanon Valley College Orchestra is a 
musical organization approaching symphonic proportions. Open 
alike to advanced players from the college and the conservatory, 
the orchestra adheres to a high standard of performance. Throughout 
the school year a professional interpretation of a wide range of 
standard orchestral literature is insisted upon. 

College Chorus. 2 hours per week, 1 semester hour credit. 

The mixed chorus is open to all on the campus who are interested 
in this type of musical performance and who have had some experi- 
ence in singing. From this chorus a group will be selected to appear 
on programs and to give concerts both at home and in other 
communities. 

Instrumental Ensembles. In addition to the larger musical organi- 
zations there is additional opportunity for advanced players to try 
out for such ensembles as 

(1) String Quartet 

(2) Violin Choir 

(3) Brass Ensemble 

(4) Woodwind Ensemble 

Radio Broadcasting. Opportunity will be given to advanced music 
students and musical organizations for experience in broadcasting 
from a recognized broadcasting station. This experience will be 
offered at regular intervals throughout the school year. 



Individual Instruction 

Voice, Piano, Organ, Chorus, Orchestral and Band Instruments. 
4 hours per week, 2 semester hours credit. 

The work in the foregoing fields will be organized from the stand- 
point of the development of musicianship in the individual student. 
The work continues through eight semesters and assures a well- 
rounded and many-sided acquaintance with various musical 
techniques.

Xcbanon Valle? College bulletin 17 

Private instruction is provided in Applied Music (Piano, Voice, 
Organ, Violin, and all instruments of orchestra and band.) 

Piano: Mrs. Bender, Mr. Campbell. 

Voice: Mr. Crawford. 

Organ: Mr. Campbell. 

Violin: Mr. Malsh. 

Instruments of Band and Orchestra: Mr. Rutledge. 

A bulletin describing courses in Practical Music will be sent upon

Junior Department 

The Conservatory sponsors a Junior Department especially adapted 
to children of Elementary or High School age. 

This Junior Department offers either private or class instruction 
in piano and all instruments of the band and orchestra. A desirable 
number for class instruction is from four to six members. 

MUSIC AND THE A.B. DEGREE 

The College offers to students of exceptional merit the opportunity 
under careful guidance of arranging special electives either in work 
leading to the A.B. degree or the B.S. degree in Music Education 
(Public School Music), so that upon the attainment of either degree 
the subsequent degree can be earned by taking two or three semesters 
additional work. 

Music study may be credited toward the A.B. Degree to a total of 
twenty semester hours (five semester hours per year). For such 
credit the requirements are as follows: Two half hour recitations 
per week in Applied Music, two hours per day in practice, three- 
hour recitations per week in harmony. 

Before entering upon this course of study the candidate must pass 
the examinations required by the Director of the Conservatory. 

A student desiring credit for this course of study is expected to 
continue the same until graduation. Credit will not ordinarily be 
granted for a single year of study. Only under exceptional conditions 
may such credit be granted by the faculty upon recommendation of 
the Director of the Conservatory. 

THE STUDENTS' RECITALS 

The students' Tuesday evening recital is of inestimable value to all 
students in acquainting them with a wide range of the best musical 
literature, in developing musical taste and discrimination, in afford- 
ing young musicians experience in appearing before an audience, and 



Department of 5ttusic 19 



in gaining self-reliance, as well as nerve control and stage demeanor. 

Students in all grades appear on the programs of these recitals. 

Each senior is expected to appear in one special graduation recital. 

FEES 

Matriculation for Music ranges from one dollar to twenty-eight dol- 
lars. No additional fee is required for music from students who have 
already matriculated for College departments. 

Semester bills are payable strictly in advance of recitations. Stu- 
dents are registered at the office of the College Registrar over the 
signature of the Director of the Conservatory. 

The Rates for the Public School Music Supervisors' Course will 
be $220 per year. This will include two private lessons per week, the 
use of a piano two hours daily for practice, and Theoretical and 
Academic Courses not to exceed seventeen points. Charges will be 
made for additional private lessons at the rate of $25 per semester for 
one lesson a week. Extra hours in Theoretical or College Courses 
will be charged at the rate of $7 per semester hour. 

Private Lessons 

Rates are determined by the classification of the pupil and the fees 
charged by the different professors. 

The rates per semester, one lesson per week, are $25.00. 

The rates per semester, one class lesson per week in the Junior 
Department, are $9.00. 

Rent of Practice Instruments 

Piano, one hour daily per semester $4.00 

Each additional hour daily per semester 2.00 

Organ, one hour daily, per semester 20.00 

Organ, two hours weekly, per semester 10.00 

Band and Orchestra Instruments, per semester 6.00 

RULES AND REGULATIONS 

Regular Conservatory students are not enrolled for a shorter period 
of time than a full semester, or the unexpired portion of a semester; 
and no reduction is made for delay in registering when the time lost 
is less than one-fourth of the semester. 

No reduction is made for absence from recitations except in case of 
protracted illness extending beyond a period of two weeks, in which 
case the loss is shared equally by the college and the student. 

Conservatory students are under the regular college discipline.
